Puntius melanampyx (Ember Barbs)
A spectacular but rarely seen barb. The males are reddish all over, but somewhat peach coloured at the head, getting darker towards the tail. When courting, the males' fins turn a deep red. Scales are edged with black, especially towards the tail. Females are yellowish and have clear fins. Both sexes bear dark bands on the head and body. All in all, very handsome fish.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
This is a peaceful species that does not appear to nip fins. Keep in a school of six or more specimens.
Breeding is similar to other barbs. The fry need infusoria at first, but grow quickly and will soon take newly hatched brine shrimp and powdered flake.
